Batman Family #11 - Marshall Rogers art


Batman Family v1 #11, 1977 - Marshall Rogers begins drawing the Man-Bat tale, backing up the main Robin/Batgirl feature. His layouts bring a freshness and enthusiasm for the character, despite the occasional crowded panel. Unfortunately, his vigor is dampened by Tex Blaisdell's loosely applied inks. Certain faces seem imprecise and overall his finishes lack clarity. Other artists in this issue include Curt Swan, Vince Colletta, Carl Potts, Frank McLaughlin and Jim Aparo (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Batman Family issues with Rogers art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers or Batman Family issues. See also this blog's Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.
